Cricket and wanderlust: Experience Travel unveils Sri Lanka tour holidays

Experience Travel Group has opened bookings for its Curious Travellers Cricket Tour to Sri Lanka. The tour will enable travellers to combine a stylish and tailor-made holiday to Sri Lanka with the opportunity to watch Joe Root’s England team, who are playing Test Matches in the beautiful and enthralling locations of Galle and Colombo in March 2020.

Wanderlust cricket-loving travellers will be bowled over by the range of experiences offered by the sun-kissed island in addition to watching their England heroes, who won 3-0 on their last visit to Sri Lanka in November 2018. Hotels and flights are expected to be snapped up quickly after the tour dates were confirmed by the England Cricket Board, with Galle, home to one of the world’s most picturesque cricket grounds, hosting the First Test between 19-23 March.

Colombo, the capital and the heartbeat of the island, will stage the Second Test at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium between 27-31 March.

Curious Travellers Cricket Tour packages arrange tickets for any number of days and for any of the travelling party that want to attend each test. Aside from the cricket, intrepid travellers can design a bespoke personal guided holiday to immerse in Sri Lankan culture.

Sam Clark, co-founder and managing director of Experience Travel Group said: “It is a wonderful opportunity to mix seeing this beautiful island with some top-class international sport in style.”
